I specialise in using a combination of media, primarily digital design, hand painting and free machine embroidery. I work as a greetings card illustrator where my designs are bought by major retailers through a creative portfolio agency who represent me. My style has the personal, delicate touch as I give close attention to beautiful details. I have a natural ability with colour and I am extremely good at listening to exactly what is required by my clients and coming up with exciting, fresh and original designs made to their specifications.
I work from home on a freelance basis and I am available for commissions in greetings card design, children's book illustration, or surface pattern for a variety of products including childrenswear, interior fabrics or stationary. I am fully trained and extremely confident in using software packages Photoshop and Illustrator.
